Border Security

The conference will particularly focus on European Border Security and current operations in these regions. Modern and innovative solutions, such as the use of satellites will be presented on, giving you current methods to boost your border security. Emphasis will too be placed on the issue modern technologies to improve efficiency and security. As well as this, there will be case studies addressing recurrent problems, such as human trafficking and the smuggling of goods, therefore allowing you to analyse and consequently adapt your security measures accordingly.
This year we have decided to hold the event in Rome due to the recent migrations and humanitarian tragedies to Italian ports from North Africa, in particular Libya. In doing this we will ensure the programme will feature some key speakers from the host nation, as well as  European Union Organisations and European nations.
